Slightly less entertaining now I realise it says Swaziland not Switzerland as I first thought :blush:

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.

When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

Witches don't ride their brooms. They're used to symbolically sweep the magical circle.

Apparently in Swaziland they do.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

they might be in todays made-up version of witchcraft, but the myth of the witches broomstick stems from the practice of taking hemlock, which gives you the sensation of flying.
the broomstick part? well, lets just say that hemlock is poisonous if ingested, but not if made into a poultice and applied... um.... 'internally', so the broomhandle was supposedly smeared in the poultice, and as this is an open-age forum, i'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.....

The supposition is that witches applied ergot and hallucinogenics to broom handles to get "high." SInce some of the hallucinogenics, particularly ergot, could not be taken orally, the broom handle was used as a dildo to apply the drug to the labia where the thin skin could absorb the drug. So, witches were just druggies who were flying high and with whom Timothy Leary would undoubtably be quite enamored.
